Wilson is free
on a $7,500 bond.
---pretty low bond given what she did, but guess given the minimal charge, ...
Aggravated endangerment of a child carries a possible sentence of up to 17 months
---sadly, with our lax DA, we have to ask: what's the minimum for Aggravated child endangerment?
his policies endanger all of us.
and as noted above,
*why isn't she charged with assault, ADW, attempted murder, etc., etc.,???
• Prosecutors have charged a 19-year-old Lawrence woman with aggravated endangerment of a child in connection with
a Nov. 18 incident in which a vehicle was driven into a Lawrence house
. The felony charge was added to a count of criminal damage Thursday in Douglas County Court. Megan Victoria Wilson was arrested Jan. 16., two months after
police allege Wilson intentionally ran her vehicle into a home in the 1900 block of East 30th Street shortly before 9 a.m. on Nov. 18. People were home
at the time, but no one was injured. Aggravated endangerment of a child carries a possible sentence of up to 17 months in prison. Criminal damage can require
a sentence of probation or up to three years in prison, depending on a person’s criminal history. Wilson is free on a $7,500 bond.
---is she driving?
is she playing softball?
commenting was disabled under today's presentation that included the added charges against this little princess.
I'm so glad the DA has at least added one charge. maybe she won't just get probation ... maybe?
I mean, it wasn't even a big truck or a Hummer....awesome!
The President has established a working group, headed by Biden, to look for all possible means to control cars. Small, less powerful cars are on the agenda, but might require an act of congress. A smaller gas tank to limit the number of rooms a car can drive through has broad agreement. Mental health laws must be stiffened to limit people suffering from mental illness from getting a license.

So..If that would have been your daughter, and she was getting back at an abusive bf or something...wouldn't you be just a little bit proud?
---well, also RE comment above, maybe she's got a future as a stunt performerin Hollywood, lol.
but if she were my daughter, getting even? naw ... better to do something you aren't going to get caught at, plus this could've ended pretty bad for her and a lot of others. pretty bad.
it's only stupid luck that there's not somebody dead or maimed severely for life. and right now the "criminal damage" charge is a pathetic joke.
where's this little princess live anyway?
I do hope thatthe sentence includes at least suspension of her driver's license.

How about premeditated attempted manslaughter or attempted murder?
---yeah! premeditation is obvious, attempted murder? assault with a deadly weapon?
heck, she exploded the waterheater on the way through, there oughta be a good charge for that alone!
9 hours, 37 minutes ago
But at least her car insurance premium will go up.
---and RE the commercial, the judge orders her name officially changed to:
Everyone would have been like "what the heck did he run into the fireplug for??"
Water would have been shooting all over the place...just my luck!
She got clear though the freaking house! Awesome!
It it would have been me, I probably would have been stopped by a fire plug or something.
That would have been just embarrassing!
She s also a registered democrat. Maybe Obama should ban democrats.
Maybe Obama should consider a car ban.
The historical preservationists aren't going to like this matter one bit. That house was historical in it's design and most certainly was on "their" list to be so designated. What ever shall we do?
Police later determined Wilson ran the vehicle into the home after an argument with someone in the home.
Criminal damage is a level-7, nonperson felony. Punishment can range from probation to up to three years in prison, depending on a person's criminal history.
Wilson was released on a $7,500 bond.
---"criminal damage" reeeeeeeally?
it's a miracle that noone was injured!
anybody give odds on her getting only probation for this???
and the story implies that she's out on the street now. and hey she's probably driving too, yaay!
A $100,000 garage door. Where do I buy one?
I am glad that she wasn't successful in murdering people.
After looking at the house, it appears that the garage doors are boarded up so, actually, she drove through the garage doors which offered little challenge and entered the house through the back of the garage and then had only one more wall to drive through to exit. Even that is pretty impressive. Probably hit a couch or two. Nice work. Who could have planned it.
Come on, give the cuzz a break. Google maps steered her in the wrong direction. She's such a nice girl...
They should put her in one of those Liberty Tax Service suits and make her dance in zero degree weather.
gotta like her tenacity. I wouldn't have thought you could make it that far into a house without it falling on you or something. Usually you see someone do this and they just get through the first wall with the back of the car sticking out in the newspapers photo. Great job.
anger management anyone?
Hold the press.......she might have a promising political career,...... in the GOP ?! Could she drive a buss loaded with people off of a cliff ??? Could she play chicken with a tractor trailer truck,........ loaded with financial reality ???
$100, 000 in damages? Was the house full of antiques? The home is only valued at 148k.
It appears to me that it was only an accident that no one was killed because of Ms. Wilson's apparently intentional and irresponsible actions. Since everyone was just plain lucky that day, the penalty won't be severe. But I'm sure that if someone had been killed, it would be treated as a very serious crime. I really don't understand why the law makes such a big distinction based on sheer luck in cases not only like this one, but also in other driving infractions such as intoxicated driving as well.
So...if she is angry with someone, the only course of action is to drive her car thru their home? I think I hear a cuckoo clock.
This is not someone who needs to be behind the wheel of a vehicle for a while. I hope a judge helps her understand the difference between a privilege and a right.
